I received the Private Pilot Certificate in 1972, the CFI in 1975 and initial ATP 1983. I have spent the bulk of my career in flying whether in charter, corporate or flight instructor. I even had a stint as a DC-3 co-pilot.
I became qualified to fly the Cessna 402 and 414 as a charter pilot 1982. I flew Navajos from 1985 – 1993 as a charter pilot and Aerostars as a charter pilot from 1985 to 1995 as a charter pilot and corporate pilot.
With the exception of 3 1/2 years as a production test pilot and charter pilot I have been conducting transition and recurrent training in high performance and complex aircraft on a full time basis since 1997.
Currently I provide transition and recurrent training in Matrix, Malibus, Mirages, Meridian, M500, M600, Cessna 340, 414, 414A, 421, 421A, 421B, 421C, Aerostars and Navajos.
I am very happy to have as my career something I love – flying and teaching the same.
